CarCostCanada's November 2019 Top 10 Vehicles Sold Report


Canada's Top 10 Selling New Cars

Canadians purchased 144,345 new vehicles last month, and while that might seem like a lot at first glance, it’s actually the lowest number since November 2014. It may also be the beginning of a trend started in November of 2017, which was the first month to drop from a previous November high of 160,367 units. Another trend has seen every month so far in 2019 weaker than the corresponding month in 2018, some significantly so, which could mean the economy isn’t as robust as our politicians are trying to tell us.

All of Canada’s top six finishers saw sales growth this month, however, starting with the best-selling Ford’s F-Series, up 3 percent year-over-year. With 11,068 deliveries to its credit, the F Series once again became the most popular pickup truck in Canada, as well as the best-selling vehicle overall, which goes to show the more some things change, the more they seem to stay the same.

The F-Series was distantly followed by Ram’s Pickup with just 5,727 unit-sales, this number seeming low in comparison, although it was 6 percent stronger than the same month last year. The Ram has been a steady runner-up all year, which is hardly new, but third place, which has been held by Toyota’s RAV4 since June, was hardly predictable earlier in the year, as compact crossover SUVs were battling it out with compact cars for sales dominance. The RAV4 sold 5,634 units in November, representing an 11.2-percent downturn from the month prior, albeit an impressive 19-percent year-over-year gain, which was strong enough to hold back fourth-place Honda CR-V that managed just 4,044 deliveries, representing a 2 percent gain from November of 2018, albeit a 29-percent drop from the previous month.

Chevy’s Silverado year-over-year sales grew by 8 percent in November, with 3,766 examples down Canadian roads. It also gained two positions on the sales charts, from seventh to fifth, despite seeing its sales numbers drop by almost 15 percent. Along the way up, it passed right on by Canada’s previous best-selling car, the Honda Civic, as did Hyundai’s Elantra that upset the automotive apple cart by leading every other carmaker to sixth place overall with 3,643 unit-sales, representing a 27-percent gain year-over-year, and 2.9 percent growth since October.

With just 3,601 deliveries in November, GMC Sierra sales fell one position and 19.3 percent to end up seventh overall, while its year-over-year sales were down 7 percent, while the eighth-pace Toyota Corolla earned 3,571 new buyers after dropping 15.9 percent from October and 3 percent year-over-year. This still earned it a higher ranking than Honda’s Civic, that plunged the best-selling car and fifth place overall to the third-best-selling car and ninth overall after seeing its monthly sales drop more than 36 percent and year-over-year tally by 28 percent. Lastly, Ford’s Escape managed to sneak its way back into the top 10, after Hyundai’s Tucson lost out. The Escape found 2,778 new buyers last month, despite year-over-year sales being down 13 percent.
